A Final Note


Symbolisms that describe phenomena on the material plane can generally be expressed by mathematical formulas that are derived from logical mappings reflecting the important characteristics of the field being examined.

Metaphysical or hyperphysical symbolisms are not as simple as those used for the purely material levels of existence. They have to take into account phenomena that occur on levels beyond the material.

The experience of centuries has suggested many metaphysical mappings. The one we shall use is that beyond the material levels are the astral planes, the mental planes, and the world of emanation.
Symbolisms that encompass these levels must of necessity be more complex than material level symbolisms. Purely mental descriptions no longer suffice for the new levels. They require "thinking" or "intuition" beyond the sleep-like thinking of the average person or materialistic scientist.

However, the person who is on the threshold of penetrating those higher planes has nothing to fear, because a characteristic of esoteric symbolisms is that they LEAD the student into the kind of thinking that is necessary to master those symbolisms. Another way of saying this is that they have an INITIATORIC FUNCTION. Runes are no exception. In fact they seem to have especially strong powers of introducing the student to themselves.

As the student progresses with the practices, the quality of his or her thinking, intuition, inspiration, and what comes beyond, continually improves and deepens.

In this characteristic lies the main difference between these and the materialistic symbolisms. It is up to the student to find out that this is so by PRACTICE of the esoteric symbolism. Knowing "about" it is not enough. Such material planes logic will never get you free from the bondage of the material levels.

What counts for us is not whether a method or practice is "true" or "false" according to the logic of the material planes, but whether it is useful from the viewpoint of those higher planes that can only be reached by PRACTICE.

To summarize it all: The function of initiation is a characteristic inherent in esoteric symbolisms. Practice of these symbolisms leads to the development of the mental, psychic, and spiritual capabilities necessary for the most effective use of those symbolisms.
